The collections of the Nationalgalerie at Hamburger Bahnhof trace artistic tendencies from 1960 to the present day. Since the opening of the museum in 1996, the presentation of the Marx Collection, with works by artists including Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Cy Twombly, has been of particular importance – in addition to the Nationalgalerie’s holdings of important works by artists such as Dieter Roth, Bruce Nauman and Carolee Scheemann. Based on these pioneers, who dissolved the boundaries of traditional art forms, the museum’s exhibitions and programmes focus on the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary art. In addition, the collection presentations also show works from the Friedrich Christian Flick Collection im Hamburger Bahnhof. The holdings are presented in thematic exhibitions as well as varying collection presentations under the title Die Sammlungen. The Collections. Les Collections.

Current presentation of the collections:

The Marx Collection ‒Joseph Beuys

In the west wing, major works by Joseph Beuys are on permanent display, including The End of the 20th Century, Tram Stop, Tallow, and Directional Forces of a New Society. Since 2016, this one-of-a-kind presentation of large-scale sculptures by the German artist has been expanded into the Kleihues Hall, which is currently closed for major renovations.

Until Further Notice
Outdoor Sculptures

Sculptures and – partly walk-in – installations by Hans Peter Adamski, Georg Baselitz, Elmgreen & Dragset, Tom Fecht, Urs Fischer, Robert Indiana, John Knight, Bruce Nauman, and Franz West, are on display in front of and behind the museum building. A light installation by American artist Dan Flavin also belongs to the building. In 1996 Flavin designed the fluorescent tubes with blue and green fluorescent light especially for the façade and the historical side wings of the museum.
